Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have abducted Pa Owere Dickson Imasogie, a prominent chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo South Senatorial district.
He was said to have been abducted alongside his driver and another person, whose identity had not been ascertained, at the Benin-Agbor highway in the early hours of Monday, September 13.
It was gathered that Pa Imasogie was on his way to one of his farms when the gunmen struck.
A group known as “Edo State Decide Movement” confirmed the abduction in a statement and urged Governor Godwin Obaseki to, as matter of urgency, “take a drastic action as to rescue the father to all and others from the hands of the hoodlums or kidnappers who are enemies of progress in our dear state.”
Imasogie is a commercial farmer who owns large farmlands.
